Hi everyone!

I hope you’re all doing well! Last week, my top post was 10 Ways Alcohol Damaged My Life. When I was still drinking, I was a bit in denial about the harmful effects of alcohol. I was oblivious to many of alcohol’s harms until after I quit drinking. The longer I’ve stayed sober, the more evident it’s become just how badly my drinking habit was hurting me. You can read the full post here.

If you want to catch up on everything that I’ve been writing, make sure to check out the main Exploring Sobriety page.

Thank you very much for reading, and I hope you have a great week!
